Asbestos Home Exposure: a Real Danger If Your Abatement Team Makes Mistakes



Asbestos exposure in the home is something that you should never have to deal with. Unfortunately, there are still many instances when this problem could occur, putting you and your loved ones at grave risk. This issue usually happens when you find asbestos and hire a company to remove it. When these professionals do not do their job properly, you're going to end up having issues, that could affect your health as well as the health of your family.

Asbestos Exposure in a Home is Very Dangerous
These days, asbestos exposure in the home should not be occurring because this product is not used in home building any longer. That said, there are instances when asbestos may still be present in older homes and when it could cause problems. This issue becomes dangerous if these fibers ever become airborne and your family breathes them in, as the fibers can cause lung damage and much more.

For example, some people may develop scar tissue in the lungs that causes lifelong breathing troubles and other health issues. In a worse case situation, someone may develop mesothelioma 20-60 years after exposure, a danger that heavily increases the longer you are exposed to asbestos. And if you leave asbestos in your home too long, this issue becomes more and more a potential risk.

This scenario doesn't have to be a nightmare if you contact a professional who fully understands how to properly remove asbestos from your home in a safe and reasonable fashion. These experts will take the time to figure out where asbestos is in your home and will provide many steps to ensure that it is removed. But if these experts make a mistake, your family is at serious risk and a lawsuit could be needed.


When You Can Sue a Removal Company
A good asbestos removal company should have little difficulty getting rid of this problematic element in your home to protect you and your family from its dangers. However, what happens if they make a mistake at any point in the process? For example, they may miss out on a few locations where asbestos removal needs done and leave behind some contaminating elements that end up causing long-term suffering.

Can you sue this company in this situation? Absolutely because they were negligent and failed to provide a safe level of control over the removal process. Just think of it like you would any other type of service. If a builder fails to create a roof that is safe, and it collapses on your family, you can sue them. The same is true of a removal expert who somehow doesn't provide the necessary level of removal.

Before you pursue this type of case, though, it is important to get legal assistance from a professional who fully understands these types of cases. Unfortunately, there's a good chance that the company will try to pass the blame to you by claiming that you did not take safety steps during the removal process and that you increased your risk of contamination. With a lawyer, you can bypass these claims and avoid case issues.
